AnyWhat effect does OCD have on the mind and the body? I am feeling tired all the time, my brain feels like it’s foggy and I can’t think properly. I feel like I’m losing my memory. I could go so far as to say I can feel emotionless. Is this normal? Is this a bi-product of OCD? My OCD is intrusive thoughts that can happen anytime about a fear and then a random compulsion based on what I’m doing at the time to remove it (if I’m typing at the time I must not type [insert work here] otherwise the fear will happen. Any information will be much appreciated.
I get OCD magical thinking, whereby I get an intrusive thought that I have to do [insert task] otherwise [fear] will happen. These tasks and fears change each time.So, what I am asking is, can you give me any proof that the nature of this OCD simply doesn’t work? Something to remind me how not giving into the tasks/rituals is okay and how whatever I’m fearing wont happen? It’s like I know it won’t but something makes me do it anyway just in case.
